This one has obviously long been closed, though it’s likely the building that housed it still stands, as that block consists largely of older structures (particularly on the corners, both of which feature historic buildings, one of which may well have hosted the above address).

A correction on my earlier post (which had the wrong side of Shattuck Avenue)—-the Opal was an original portion of the F.D. Chase Building (initially 2107-2111 Shattuck Avenue), constructed in 1909; the building’s architect was William H. Wharff. The theater was a single-screen. The building’s gouund floor storefronts have recently been renovated; curiously, the address numbers are now 2109-2119 Shattuck).

To clarify things, the Opal was located in the 2107 storefront in the F.D. Chase Building.

It may have been a nickelodeon.
